Attachment, Play, and Authenticity: A Winnicott Primer
(Jason Aronson, 2008)
D. W. Winnicott is probably the most influential and evocative child therapist and theoretician who ever lived. His work provides the underpinning for much of the empirical and clinical enterprises regarding the developmental process over the past half-century. Using more than twenty-five of his most thought-provoking, conceptual, and clinical writings as its base, this book provides a systematic construction of his theories and integrates them with his clinical work, so that Winnicott as preeminent clinician sits alongside Winnicott the generative theorist. At the same time, Tuber takes a playful approach, noting that “the capacity for play [was] understood by Winnicott to be the gold standard for determining the capacity to be fully alive and human.” Steven Tuber (Prof., City) is on the doctoral faculty in psychology.
